About two years into the Syrian conflict that has claimed tens of thousands of lives, President Obama “is preparing to send lethal weaponry to the Syrian opposition,” The Washington Post’s Karen DeYoung reported late on Tuesday. She cites administration officials as saying that Obama “has taken steps to assert more aggressive U.S. leadership among allies and partners seeking the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad.”

The O is backing the Muslim Brotherhood..... This is a wrong direction that will make the region a kill zone for extreme elements.....

A real can of worms got opened by a certain former President and his quest for spreading western style democracy throughout the middle east.....

Maybe he should have started the movement with our supposed Jewish ally first!

Obama drew the line in the sand over 4 years after a certain president finished his second term. Maybe Obama should go over and sit across a table with the Syrians and flash his magnanimous smile. You folks bought into the notion that Obama would solve all our foreign problems in '08, and still hadn't learned a community organizer more focused on gay athletes than dangerous terrorist-abetting nations probably was going to lead to some dangerous standoff after you reelected him.
